We are pleased to announce that Managing Partner Aaron Evans has been asked to speak in an upcoming live webinar, "Emergency Guardianship and Guardianship'sGuardianship's: Pursuing Court Intervention and Orders, Contested Proceedings" scheduled for Wednesday, April 15. Guardianship, conservator ships, and other protective proceedings fall under the jurisdiction of the probate court. The probate court may appoint a guardian or conservator on behalf of a person if it finds a person to be incapacitated or in some cases, subject to undue influence. The proceedings for guardianship and conservator ship are rife with pitfalls, and elder law attorneys must navigate the nuances of pursuing or defending against claims. A guardianship or a conservator ship is a court-supervised process for transferring an incapacitated individual's rights to someone capable of providing supervision regarding care or finances. The procedures involved can be daunting and require a careful analysis of the risks and factors requiring the need for court intervention, required court evaluations and hearings, and other essential matters that impact the proceedings. These protective proceedings come with inherent risks that often result in contested and litigated proceedings. A variety of issues beyond incapacity--such as financial abuse, fraud, misappropriation of assets, unacceptable accounting, and other critical issues--can be the basis for claims challenging the appointment or removal of a guardian or conservator. Attorneys must grasp these protective proceedings and available techniques to protect client interests. This will be an opportunity for Evans Case to share with other elder law attorneys our expertise relating to in-depth analysis of the legal, procedural, and administrative challenges of emergency conservator ships and guardianship's. Aaron will discuss critical issues in pursuing court intervention and orders, identifying risk and protective factors, and recent case law and standards of review, as well as offer techniques for conservator ship and guardianship litigation. We will review these and other key issues:
